As a baseball fan who owns his share of personal memorabilia, I don’t mind telling you that I usually look to collect autographed items from two groups: Hall of Famers, and young players who are just entering their prime. If you’re looking for the latter, and live in the Southern California area, check out what’s going down at the Upper Deck Store in Huntington Beach tomorrow:
The Los Angeles Dodgers have absolutely run away with the NL West this year, and though it’s still only June, I sincerely doubt anyone will catch them by the fall. As I’m writing this, they have the best record in all of baseball. How have they pulled it off? With a young core of players that are the envy of every fan outside Chavez Ravine. Loney, Billingsley and Broxton are the first baseman, pitching ace and closer for this team, and will be for some time: none of them are over age 25.
Aside from getting an item signed at a very low price, the best part of this event is getting to meet these stars in person. Buying a piece of autographed memorabilia to add to your collection is great, but it’s a whole other experience to meet the athlete and watch them sign it for you. And guess what? Right after this signing, Loney, Broxton and Billingsley will be off to face the Angels in interleague play (the projected pitching matchup is Jeff Weaver against his younger brother Jered Weaver!) That’s a level of interaction on gameday you rarely get at the stadium.
